Thomas Tuchel has turned down approaches from Arsenal and Chelsea to become the new Paris Saint-Germain coach, reports say. The German has been heavily linked with a move to the Premier League and was being chased by Chelsea and their local rival, Arsenal. Chelsea are searching for a new manager as Antonio Conte’s position at the club continues to deteriorate, while Arsenal are preparing for the departure of Arsene Wenger this summer.
Tuchel enjoyed success as Borussia Dortmund, but has been out of a job since being sacked by the Bundesliga club in May 2017. Bild now claim Tuchel has secured his next managerial post, but will not be joining either Arsenal or Chelsea. Paris Saint-Germain have won the race to sign the 44-year-old and Tuchel has penned a two-year deal with the French giants.
PSG have grown disillusioned with their current boss, Unai Emery, after the Spaniard failed to guide his side to the latter stages of the Champions League. Real Madrid knocked PSG out of the Champions League in the last-16 and Emery’s head is now on the chopping board, according to numerous reports in France. Tuchel won the German cup at Dortmund, and worked with Arsenal star Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang while in Germany.
